Anglian Water makes planning application for northerly stretch of strategic pipeline

Anglian Water has submitted the planning application for its 57km Elsham to Lincoln pipeline, the most northerly section of its £400m investment into hundreds of kilometres of interconnecting pipelines to prevent water scarcity.

The section includes new pumping stations and a water storage tank and will link up with new pipelines to the south, stretching to Suffolk and Essex. It has been designed to avoid sensitive ecological sites and protected species habitats, and to have the lowest carbon footprint possible in line with Anglian Water’s pledge to reach net zero carbon by 2030.

Subject to planning consent, work is expected to start later this year. There are four councils along the planned route: North Lincolnshire Council, West Lindsay District Council, City of Lincoln Council and North Kesteven District Council.
